I’m building a new pc in the next month or 2 and I’m planning to water cool it at a later date, as I currently unable to use the equipment I would need. I’m planing to get the ROG Strix variant of the RTX 2080, will I be able to water cool it and what part would I need, thanks for any help.

EK will probably release a waterblock for it eventually.


My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

takes a while for EK to get a block out because there are loads of varied complications. There will be one out eventually just hang on.

Don't buy a custom PCB version if you want to waterblock it.  The custom PCBs don't make a difference for performance anyways.

You'll end up overpaying for a card that will be harder to water cool and gain 0 benefit. Pickup an nvidia version founders card. They overclock extremely well, the stock cooler pretty much gets you as close to water cooled boosts as any of the other cards, and the fans are not noisy at all. Plus water blocks already exists in a plethora form for them.
